30 for 30: Silly Little Game (2010)

** 1/2 (out of 4)

The latest entry in ESPN's series takes a look at the men (and one woman) who helped start what would eventually become a $2-billion dollar industry. Avid baseball fans dreamed of what it would be like running your own team so they came up with what we'd eventually call Fantasy Baseball. This documentary is pretty good at giving us the events of how everything went down but in the end, for me, there just wasn't enough of a story here to really warrant a documentary. Actually, the story is worthy of a documentary but the subject just seems a bit too light for the 30 FOR 30 series, which has turned out to pretty good episodes. This one here is mildly entertaining but nothing else. The biggest problem I had with the show was show we got rather silly re-enactments. These were meant to be somewhat funny but not once did I laugh. I thought they were way too silly, although perhaps they did this to fit in with the title. The fact that these group of people never made a dime off of this is pretty unique but adding them to the Baseball Hall of Fame might not be a bad idea as one of the men interviewed suggested.
